“An interview with Barbara Angela Kealy… I first interviewed Barbara back in June 2018. London born, with an Irish father and Italian mother, Barbara was the fourth of seven children. Never a shrinking violet, Barbara, together with her sister Sandra, attended the local dance school at an early age, loving the opportunity to perform on stage whenever the teachers arranged shows for the public. Shortly after forwarding her portfolio to a prestigious agency in London, Barbara became a lookalike for the iconic actress, Joan Collins, travelling around the United Kingdom and Europe in her exciting new showbusiness career. This has fuelled her life experiences, and certainly her ﬁrst book, Double Deception. And in case you’re interested, Barbara’s Apocalypse Books choices were The Magician’s Wayby William Whitecloud, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, and Murder Most Royal by Jean Plaidy”.
